Reinventing Recruiting: The Talent Acquisition Imperative

10 Minute Read Reinventing Recruiting: The Talent Acquisition Imperative In our analyst research, Fosway talks to a lot of mid and large companies. Nearly every one of them has a common story about their challenges to reinvent recruiting at the level they need to support their business and its future direction. Skills and talent gaps are growing, not narrowing, and companies can’t find good people to fill those gaps. The war for talent rages strongly, as does the competition to attract their attention. Lots of focus on employer branding means little if you cannot find suitable candidates, or if the way you communicate with them is out of date or ineffective. Even modest successes can easily be undermined by poor application processes, and a bad applicant experience. Recruitment needs fixing, and it needs fixing now. Not just to meet current needs but also to make it fit for the future. […]

Transforming Talent in the Modern Workforce

15 Minute Read Transforming Talent in the Modern Workforce Changes in the world of work, evolving employee expectations and advances in technology are creating a perfect storm that is transforming the modern workforce and the modern workplace. Pitched against a backdrop of growing skills gaps, the pressures for organisations to rethink their talent approach – and systems – is intense. So, how prepared are organisations for the modern workforce? And how prepared is their talent management agenda for this fast-moving world? The answer appears to be that they are not. Whilst some areas like performance and appraisal appear to be more mature and advanced, the areas that are frequently cited as being most important to the modern workforce and the brand proposition that attracts and retains the best workers, are not. For many it’s a lack of innovation or adoption of next generation technologies to properly support talent. But often the issue is more fundamental; organisational denial that there is even a need to respond to changing demographics and demands. And whilst there is a minority of organisations that report being very advanced (10%) in their response to the way work is changing, there are a significant majority who risk being left behind whilst their more agile competitors take the war for talent to the next level.
